Eden

Faith, doubt and infatuation

There are few moments in your life when you face as many challenges as when you go to confirmation camp. That is what Aliisa, Jess and Panu all experience. They all go more or less reluctantly, but it's going to be a week they won't soon forget. 

Aliisa goes only to reassure her grandmother, even though she has her doubts and is very vocal about the issues they explore at camp. Jess is the popular girl, used to getting everything her way. When she is not seen as the popular girl at camp, she becomes insecure. Panu is torn between his fighting parents and just wants to hide from it all. The camp has a hectic schedule, and everyone emerges from the short week with memories they'll never forget.
